Wilmington, Delaware, 1803 November 7. In part: Major Adams held in Harrison County in the State of Virginia now in West Va. States, but might be redressed in the year. The sale took place, I understand, about a year ago, & unless redeemed in 12 months from this time, will be the property of the purchaser. Jackson last Spring for information relative to Adams's Land.
I thought ambiguous in answering. I wrote a 2nd time to Col.
Jackson who recommended his son as a lawyer to represent my inquiry. I requested to the Col. To lay my letter before his son & to write me what was proper to be done on my part that I might be ready at the meeting of Congress through you to lay everything before him etc. To this letter I have not received any answer, which confirms the belief that they are engaged in the speculation above stated. You know that you entered judgment against Davis?At the fields of Lamb & Tilton which by the management of Sheriff Isaac & Mr. Hamilton will not be satisfied out of the assets in the state. From the list I got from Henderson? It will therefore be a pity if the family should lose it for so trivial a sum.
You are now in possession of my understanding on the business, & I will thank you to have examination on the subject in such manner as you may judge proper under all circumstances with J. Randolph or some other old lawyer from Virginia can inform you in which manner I can (if any there be) obtain my debts from these lands. Let me hear from you as soon as convenient.
